No matter who they are—beauties, heroes, sages, chosen ones, villains, killers, avengers—they are all doomed to die. The most enigmatic and profound subject during the Renaissance was people's fear, resistance, acceptance, and fascination with death. Death is one of the most pervasive themes in art. In Staring at Death, art historian Qiu Luzi invites you on a journey to explore the theme of death in the Renaissance period.
